Our long national nightmare of the Winter Olympics is over and our regular programming can now continue. Like the first signs of Spring, all of TV is returning to new episodes this week. The Alienist, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and the series premiere of Good Girls are our Top Picks To Watch Tonight with The Alienist being the most important of all of them!
Monday nights aren’t the same with new The Brave on but we must, we will, soldier on. We still have a new episode of our current fave psychological thriller, The Alienist (make sure you have read our latest deep dive recap of last week’s episode before you watch tonight), as well as new episodes of Supergirl, Scorpion and The Good Doctor. Out of the norm, we are looking at a documentary on Silk Road (of Dark Web fame). All in all, a fun filled night of TV.
I’d be remiss not to mention the fact that the Winter Olympics begin on Thursday and so expect lots of coverage on that from us (we love the Olympics) and in fact, NBC is doing a preview hour of the Americans to watch at the games, but, as we have other things we’d rather watch tonight at 10, it didn’t make our recommend list.
Tonight, The Brave begins its two part season finale (renew this show NBC!!). Elsewhere, plenty of new TV with the series premieres of The Alienist and The Resident. Also, new Supergirl, Scorpion and The Good Doctor. So much to watch!!!
The Brave returns with another new episode tonight; prepare for some fallout from last week’s daring rescue of Jaz. Elsewhere, the epic Season 1 finale of The Gifted (2 hours worth!)’ the return of Supergirl from hiatus and new episodes of The Good Doctor and Scorpion.
Some of our favorite Monday shows are still on hiatus but not our most favorite new show, The Brave. The Brave returns tonight to pick up right after the fall finale and Jaz’s abduction. Also new, The Good Doctor.
Last advice for the day, Roll Tide!!
The end of the year is a great time to take stock of where we are. Today, I’m letting you know my top new shows of the Fall television season. These shows are weekly installment shows (distinguished from “binge” shows where an entire season is made available at once a la Netflix or Hulu). Why differentiate? Because, at least for me anyway, I watch “binge” shows very differently from weeklies and the characteristics and criteria for what makes them great isn’t necessarily the same in the two categories.
Anyhoo, read on and let me know what you think. There are a couple of “obvious” choices here that you’ll see on other critics lists. There are several that I am sure you will not. But, hey, I’m me and this is my world so step inside my thinking a bit. Leave your thoughts and choices in the comments. I love discussing TV and why you think something is great … or not.
Without further ado, the Best New Show of the Fall Season is …
Tonight on Supergirl, World Killer, Reign, makes her official, fully costumed, debut and she looks kind of badass. Also, we have new The Gifted, new The Good Doctor and new Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comic Books. So, lots of fun stuff to watch on Monday nights! Enjoy the new while you can as mid-season finales begin this week!
